“Readings on Race” Book Discussion Group at the Blue Hill Public Library

2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Blue Hill Public Library
5 Parker Point Rd, Blue Hill, ME, 04614

New members are invited to the last meeting (until fall) of the Blue Hill Public Library’s monthly book group, “Readings on Race,” on Saturday June 9th from 2:00 to 4:00 PM. The group will be discussing a series of articles and podcasts, obtainable online, having to do with “casual racism.” A list of readings is also available at the library.

The group will watch some examples of casual racism, and do some role playing to build skills for confronting it. Participants will discuss, “What racist comments have you heard that you wish you had been better prepared to respond to?”, and they are invited to email descriptions of scenarios so that the moderator can compile and present them to the group.

Surry resident Kate Mrozicki facilitates the group. Kate is a farmer who believes in the power of difficult conversations to change our reality. She got to practice those conversations during years of working for The Food Project in Boston and now raising small children in Surry. This event is free and everyone is welcome. For more information on the readings call the library at 374-5515 or email info@bhpl.net.
